Ferrari boss Amedeo Felisa has said the firm will ”never” follow rivals Aston Martin and Porsche into making a four-door sports saloon.

“As Enzo [Ferrari, company founder] would say, we will never do four doors,” said Felisa. “And we will keep this tradition.”

When it was put to Felisa that once upon a time Ferrari would not have made a hybrid vehicle or had fuel-saving stop-start technology on its cars – two things it is working on now – he said: “Hybrid was forced on us by regulation, there is no regulation forcing us to do four doors.

“Frankly speaking no-one is asking for a four-door Ferrari. If you want a four door Ferrari we have a Maserati.

“We stand 60 years and we never needed four doors. What never means, I don’t know, but one of the strong points of Ferrari is to keep the product in the right way. I’m not saying four doors is not right for the image, but it’s not part of our heritage.”

Thank god, at least one company is still willing to stick to it's heritage rather than try and cover any market they can...

Wow really? I'll be damned, I hadn't noticed.

And that was irony.

For the first time, I think, I agree with you. I reserve my sarcasm for idiots.

Hahahaha! What I meant was 'only idiots use sarcasm'... but then that definitely makes me an idiot, if not on here then certainly in real life.
